This book-simple and powerful is the result of Murray's passionate exploration of the issue of surrender: why it's seemingly impossible and yet completely necessary.
- Truely Recommended
I really love books that have stood the test of time. Although some of the writing is clearly from another century (literally - think KJV), this is one of the more solid books I've read both from a biblical standpoint and how inspired I feel after listening. At only 3.5hrs long, this audio is truely recommended and can be listened to over and over.
- Must-Read for Serious Disciple of Christ
Synopsis: Andrew Murray (1928-1917) is consider by many to be one of the greats of Christian Teaching. The author of more than 50 books and numerous other works, Murray wrote with a plain and passionate urgency to Christians, encouraging and exhorting them to serve God to the Abandonment of all else. This particular work discusses that in his classic prose - simple and profound.
Review: As with Murray's other works, this is superb. Murray has the rare talent of speaking with both grace and firmness. He does not mince words, or pander to the ego but speaks plainly of what is expected of a Christian. And yet, there is no judgement in his words, but a deep compassion for his reader.
As for this particular work, he calls the Christian to seriously examine their life and root out any areas that do not completely conform to the life Christ has called Christians to live. With practical advice and loving encouragement, Murray inspires the reader to dig deep into their Life with Christ and surrender all things.
A must-read for the serious disciple of Christ, and worth the time.
Note: ChristianAudio offered this book as their Free Download in March 2019. The Audio version was well-done, with clear narration and diction. Although it may no longer be free, I would recommend the audio version offered by ChristianAudio as an excellent way of hearing the teachings of Murray.
- Recommend it highly
So loved this book in every way. Such a beautiful message that we need to hear more often in our churches, and to reflect on in our hearts after hearing it. This is what it is all about when we truly surrender to our God.

Murray challenges us to live a life of absolute surrender to God. The secret of this surrender is not in striving to be better, because we can't. Rather, it is only in understanding the impossibility of this task and then resting in God and being filled with the life of the Spirit that this life is possible. Highly recommended.
